I'll warn you before listening to this weather rant, there is some pretty harsh language that will offend some. But I have to say this guy is right on about the wind in Sask. It can be relatively high temp on the thermometer but if the wind blows it is miserable. Sunshine and quiet at -20F is actually nicer.

In January of 1951 we hit -53 on the farm in South Central Wisconsin. All the water pipes froze in the barn and was difficult to keep the old farmhouse warm. Had no school that day, had to walk 2 miles to the 1 room country school in those days.

Nowadays they cancel the school buses when it gets past a certain degree of coldness. I don't think we did better than -20F for a high today. Back down to -32 overnight. Using lots of electricity according to this news story. Near record demand in Alberta Monday night.

I have no need for AC in this house. I don't complain about the heat unless it is pushing the high 70s and that rarely happens indoors. We did have 40C, I think that is close to 100F, on the day of the local car show in 2018. That had me looking for a shady spot but it only lasted for a day or so. I did need the AC working in the swather though.

Yup, tis a little brisk out. I'm driving to Edmonton every weekday for my Water Tech classes, a bit of a difference from home to the city. -40C at home, around -32C at NAIT this morning. Made sure to dress warm, it's about 3/4 of a mile walk from where I park to get to campus.

40 to 65?? Heck, that's swimsuit weather! :lol:
When the temp hits 65 here, the window A/C comes on. Fortunately, it only takes the one 5,000 BTU window unit to do all of our cooling.
Winter is a whole different ballgame!

I begin to complain about the heat at much above 65 and start running the ac . I can handle 40 below zero Fahrenheit a whole lot better than 75 above If it ever hits 90 itís the end of time around here

celcius or farenhiet it evens out at -40. sun is shinning now but its cold. I am at Westlock Alberta. had a calf born dec 30 of all things. the mother don't have enough milk so bottle feeding it 3 times a day. plus pumping water from the dugout into a stock tank for the cows . need to open dugout each time also. need to be pretty quick in this weather so pump and lines don't freeze. I built a heater to put into the tank. I have the fire going every day out there , throw coal in for the night. its quite a chore just to have a few cows. there is no power out there cause its at the far end of the farm have a piece of low land not crop suitable. other years I would go out everyday to open the dugout and let them drink right from it. but thought try this this year so they have warmer water, but this crazy cold weather aint helping much. maybe just sell the cows next year,?? I mention that and get the evil eye.

sounds almost as bad as White river Ontario. I worked there one winter back in early 80's and we had days it was -60. Had a 3 on the tree pickup we drove up there from Lindsay Ontario. First morning it was so cold I couldn't shift out of first, so had to sit with clutch in and let things warm up. Found out later on that 80 90 gear oil don't work to well in white river in January!

-42F??? And heres me thinking I'm in the coldest place on the forum at a mere -32F this morning. Sun is shining and my trees shelter me from what little wind there is so its not too bad. When I"m outside I'll keep busy with a pitch fork or snow shovel or chopping ice to help keep warm.
Hard to believe I took this picture almost 50 years ago. My dad with his fur hat and pitch fork.

The coldest I've ever experienced was -51F. I'll be happy if I never see below -40F again. That's too cold to do anything.

Rustred,

Brrrrrr!!

I fear we will run out of rust in the future. We'll likely be left with only piles of cracked and faded plastic. :(
